Memories - SATW/Blue Fern Studio's Layout + Video tutorial!

I actually manage find the time to make a layout for the Scrap Around the World Challenge and Blue Fern Studio's combined. :) Love it when I can play in my room! I also recorded it so if you'd like to see how I made it you are more than welcome to do so.

I wanted to scrap my grandmother in quite young age, don't really know how old she is here either :) Paper's from Garden Fable and Debutante collection.

And here's my take on both of them:

I've used two pieces of chipboard from Blue Fern Studios.. Don't really know their names.. Buuut..they are there.. :) 

Would you like to see how I made this? Here's the tutorial video! :)

The lovely title is from 7 dots Studio.  The wooden bow are Prima marketing.

Smile - Layout!

I had some free time yesterday.. oh well.. the dishes and dust bunnies are there tomorrow as well.. :P Soo I made a layout following the Prima BAP sketch! :)

I've played with soooo much prima goodies!! I've used the newest collection "Garden Fable" on this. Paper, most of the flowers and chipboards all are from that collection. This is the BAP sketch:

and this is my take on it: 

Loads of layes, flowers, sequins and some stamping with the newest Finnabair stamps.. They are sooo awesome and fantastic to stamp with! 

On the background I've played with Color Blooms, stamping and gesso. 

I'm of course entering the Prima BAP challenge for June with this layout. I'm aslo entering the Berry71Bleu stamp it up challenge and's #anmasommer - challenge.

Memories Envelope - DT Marion Smith Designs

It's my day over at the Marion Smith Designs blog today! And what a day it has been, I've been out doing newborn photography! It was really nice, and that's why I'm a bit late today.. :)

I made a vintage project today with the MSD "Junque Gypsey" line.. Those papers are utterly gorgeous!

This time I've made an envelope to save your memories in. I'm thinking old tickets, pictures.. whatever  you'd like in it.

I've decorated with loads of flowers and I've fuzzy cut loads of stuff from the beautiful papers. You get so much for free in the papers. I've also used a stencil from 7dots with modeling paste and I've added some of the gold paint from Viva Decor on my flowers and paper egdes.

Hope you liked my Memory envelope and would love to hear what you think! :) Leave me a comment and I'll leave one back.. Have a fantastic day! :)

Insta Love Layout - DT Maya Road

It's my first ever blogpost at the Maya Road blog today and I'm beyond excited because it's also my first ever blogpost with a tutorial video!! My hubby fixed a webcam for me so I had to try it out. This time I made a layout - of course mixed media.

I had to scrap this precious picture of my youngest. He was born 7 weeks prematurely and had to get some help and medical attention the first week of his life.

I've used loads of Maya Road products on my page like Maya Mist. Chipboards and kraft elements.

I've actually used a sketch I found at Art-Piaskownica blog and used it as a refrence point for my layout. The papers are the newest from 13@rts and Olga Heldweins collection. Here's the sketch:

Well, time to present my first ever video tutorial! Pleease be gentle with me :P 

On the Maya Road blog you can find a full list of supplies I've used. Thank you so much for stopping by me today and have great crafty day! :)

"Summer Rain" Canvas - DT Poppydesign

This week is my week on the Poppydesign blog and do love making layouts and cards but sometimes I like to mix things up by doing an altered project like this canvas.

Oh yes it's been raining like CRAZY here in the last 4 weeks and frankly I'm getting a bit weather sick. I thought this paper with the raindrops was perfect for my weather canvas!

I used loooads of media and paper on this. I glued down pieces of different type of Poppydesign paper and added them randomly with gel medium. I added some modeling paste on top with a stencil. I also used gold paint from Viva Decor.

You can see some ot the texture, stamping and paper I've used. The man is a Tim Holtz die. Today it's actually been a bit of sun here. Thank you for stopping by and checking out my project!

Have a fantastic creative evening! :) 

It's a year for news!

Oh I am sooo delighted to share this news with you all! I've kept it a secret for some time now, and now I can share it!

I'm a part of the first ever International designteam for Scrapberry's! Sooo excited!!

Please check out the new international blog for Scrapberry's and see the rest of the fantastic designteam! :)

Kurs på Trøndersaksa!

I'm so fortunate to have been asked by the lovely girls from Trøndersaksa to teach some classes there. So this is for my Norwegain readers.

Jeg har vært så heldig å bli forspurt å holde kurs på Trøndersaksa i Trondheim og så klart kan man ikke si nei til det. Jeg skal holde to kort kurs denne gangen. Og her er sneakpeeks på kursene jeg skal holde:

Det første kurset jeg har satt opp er et steampunk kurs. Det synes jeg passer godt til herrekort og litt røffere jentekort. Det kan jo absolutt brukes til begge deler. Jeg legger vekt på lag på lag, detaljer og ikke minst den herlig steampunk effekten.

Det andre kursene legger jeg vekt på hvordan man kan lage detaljer på kortene sine, dynamikk i hvordan man setter sammen med blomster til flotte dekorasjoner med liv.  Vi lager to kort i lystige farger.

Kunne du tenke deg å være med på kurs? ta en titt her for påmelding :) 

Jeg håper å se deg der :)
